 1.  You're a chosen generation,
        royal priesthood for His throne;
     You're a blessed and holy nation;
        you're a people for His own.
     So you may declare His praises,
        do what's pleasing in His sight,
     He has called you out of darkness
        to His glorious, marv'llous light.

 2.  Once you were not called a people
        in a world that's gone astray;
     Now you've heeded His great calling,
        showing forth His will and way.
     You had not received the mercy
        of Eternal God above;
     Now you are the blessed receivers
        of His mercy and his love.

 3.  You're a chosen generation,
        royal priesthood for His throne;
     You're a blessed and holy nation;
        you're a people for His own.
     So you may declare His praises,
        do what's pleasing in His sight,
     He has called you out of darkness
        to His glorious, marv'llous light.
